. right now the storm has started bearing down on canada. it's about 145 miles or so southwest of halifax, snow scotia after brushing parts of massachusetts overnight. the storm disrupted vacations this labor day weekend. its close skirt up the eastern seaboard was less intense than feared. the storm is still kicking up dangerous rip currents. we have nbc's kevin tibbles live in rock port, massachusetts. sunshine in the last hour. looks like sunshine how. you're having a good time it looks like. >> reporter: alex, earl we hardly new you. i don't think we got to meet you at all last night. it rained here a little bit, but nothing like the dire predictions that have been taking place all week with this cat 4 storm showing up here. earl turned out to be a bit of a wimp actually. it's a beautiful day in rock port. all the activities planned for the labor day weekend and were put on hold, everything is being put back on. if folks were headed out here and were a little scared of the weather forecast, my advice to you would be to hop into a car right now because it is a gorgeous day here in rock
of canada leaving in its wake its churned up beaches along maryland, delaware, and virginia and down into the outer banks. and of course, up around cape cod, too. they will be a little rip tide during the day today. so the high rip risk for dangerous rip currents. other than that, nice weather. pretty quiet. let's look at what's going on outside now. the sun is beginning to show up. we have generally clear skies. 72 at the inner harbor. humidity is down. barometer down but rising. the barometer is so far down because that hurricane is still nearby, relatively speaking. 600 miles away or something like that. temperatures in the yellows. they are right around the coastal areas and in the bay. pull further away, and you go to green. 70's, 60's. and then blue. 59 in frostberg. over the next couple mornings. some of these will be getting down into our area. we just adjusted the temperatures a little bit. annapolis 73. 66 at west minister. still in the 50 adds out west. -- 50's out to the west. here's the cool front. it is moving off shore now, moving all that humid air out and being repla

lucky here in the united states, our friends in canada won't be so lucky. earl is about to make landfall as a very strong tropical storm in nova scotia. so the most damage that earl will sprou going to happen take up this from halifax down to nova scotia. 70-miles-per-hour winds, but the storm is moving quickly. so by later today, the storm will be long gone. so what's next? september is the peak of the hurricane season. usually one storm after another. it looks like we'll miss the storm once again. this is a slow moving system, should be near puerto rico about five days from now, so we have plenty of time to watch it and there's no threat to the united states as we go through the labor day weekend. back to you. >>> overseas, they're still as cessing the damage this morning after a major earthquake in new zealand. it measure 7.1 and was centered on the south island just west of christ church, the country's second largest city. melissa stokes of tvnz is in christ church for us. we know there was certain for people trapped in rubble. what do we know about any rescues or cualties at this ho
, the canadian maritimes. fast-moving storm. it will be 1,000 miles into canada by this time tomorrow night. what do we owe for the nice timely shredding of this big storm? >> well, it was a combination of things, brian. first of all, the storm went through a cycle which they do. it was a weakening cycle when it came to cape hatteras and the jet stream you talk about came in and affected it. there's where the hurricane force sustained winds were. only about 60 miles off of cape hatteras last night. these were the hurricane-force gusts. we got the 82, 83-mile-an-hour gusts on the cape. it did what it was supposed to do and we were just lucky. this is going to be one of those "could have beenorse" situations. here we go into mid evening tonight. there you see tropical storm-force winds on cape cod there, the very tip of long island and the hurricane-force winds stay offshore. then late tonight and into early tomorrow, the end of the cape gets clipped and so does nantucket. there's still going to be problems there. even in the metro boston area, they have a flash flood watch for the boston providenc
